About the Author

Mona McNee has championed synthetic phonics as a reading method for decades, writing several books on the subject and campaigning for its return to the school curriculum. She discovered the benefits of synthetic phonics first hand after using this method to teach her own son, who has Down's syndrome, and whose school claimed he could not be taught to read. Ms McNee proved otherwise and saved her son from a life of illiteracy. Parents the world over are indebted to Mona McNee for her unrelentingly campaigning for phonics to be the preferred method of teaching reading in schools. Her campaigning finally paid off when the Secretary of State concluded in his influential Rose Report that synthetic phonics offers the vast majority of young children the best and most direct route to becoming skilled readers and writers . Synthetic phonics is now teaching children to read in primary schools all over the UK.
